It’s FINALLY that time of year again! Leaves are starting to fall from the trees, temperatures are dropping (unless you live in NC and it’s still sweltering hot) and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte has arrived; HELLO FALL! Since I can’t curl up in cozy sweaters by the the fire, I decided to add touches of Fall around our new home to help me get in the spirit! Below, I’m sharing 5 easy ways to add a little Fall to your home!
PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS! Who doesn’t love a great pumpkin for Fall? I grabbed a couple felt pumpkins from Home Goods and swapped them with some of the vases I already had. I also added some Fall-themed potpourri to the coffee table (the mini orange pumpkins). Not only are they adorable, but they smell delicious too!
UPDATE YOUR COFFEE TABLE: My coffee table is one of the first things I change with the different seasons! I recently stopped into one of my favorite local boutiques for home decor and gifts located in Cameron Village, The Local Squirrel! The Local Squirrel has the BEST selection of Fall-themed accents + great jewelry, shoes, books and more! I decided to swap out my summer colored books for a more neutral palette that reminded me of Fall. Coffee table books are a must! I also added a few other finds from the Local Squirrel including this fun chevron tray, white picture frame and yummy smelling candle! I cannot say enough great things about The Local Squirrel, and if you live in the Raleigh area, you have to check them out! I promise it will become a favorite for you too!
FALL-THEMED PILLOWS + A COZY THROW: Look for pillows with lots of texture and pattern and that are also in a Fall color palette (think oranges, red and yellows). I found this fun fringe pillow at The Local Squirrel and knew it needed to be mine. I also added a matching cozy throw (also found at The Local Squirrel) for a touch of cozy.
CANDLES: Fall is more than just mums on the porch and cute pumpkins, it’s all about the heavenly smells too! I love to grab a couple of Fall-scented candles to burn throughout the season. I love the one I found from The Local Squirrel because it smells good and looks cute!
NEW COFFEE MUGS: I like to update my mug collection in the Fall for all of the warm beverages I know I will be drinking. Hot coffee in the morning, apple cider, hot cocoa….you name it, and ill be drinking it! I snagged this adorable mug from The Local Squirrel and can’t wait to put it to use. I’m thinking a few of my girlfriends will need one for their Christmas present (too soon?).
Try one of these tips or do them all! Your house will be cozy, smelling yummy and full of Fall in no time!
